Objective.-To assess the specialty plans of current fourth-year medical students and, for those not choosing primary care specialties, to investigate the potential effect that changes in key economic or lifestyle factors could have in attracting such students to primary care.
Design and Participants.-A survey study was sent to 901 fourth-year medical students in the 1993 graduating classes of six US medical schools.
Outcome Measures.-Comparisons were made between students choosing and not choosing primary care specialties.
For the non-primary care students, we also evaluated whether alteration of income, hours worked, or loan repayment could attract them to primary care careers.
